Hypnosis vs Midazolam for Sedation for TEE
Most of the reports on hypnosis in the literature have focused on pain control during minor operations. With this study we aimed to evaluate the role of hypnosis on sedation for transesophageal echocardiography and compare it with commonly used sedative midazolam.
Clinical Indications for Transesophageal Echocardiography
|Study Design:||Time Perspective: Prospective|
|Official Title:||Hypnosis for Sedation in Transesophageal Echocardiography: Comparison With Midazolam|
- Sedative effects of hypnotherapy and the drug "midazolam" indicated by anxiety scores and bispectral index (BIS) monitoring [ Time Frame: during transesophageal echocardiography ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- measurement of alertness after sedation with continuous performance test (CPT) [ Time Frame: the same time frame ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

The patients will be given 0.05mg/kg iv midazolam just before monitorization. During probing, in case of intolerance to the insertion of the probe, the increments of midazolam with 0.005mg/kg doses will be given.
A first hypnotic induction will be carried out the day before the procedure, next day, fifteen minutes before the procedure, a new induction will be performed.
